P. Martic -278 / D. Collins +210
Croatian tennis player, Petra Martic will play against Danielle Rose Collins from the United States.
Petra Martic defeated Russian teenager, Anastasia Potapova, in the previous round. Martic lost the opening set but fought back to win the overall contest. This is the second successive match where Martic has won following losing the opening set. In the previous round, Petra Martic impressed with her receiving as she won 44% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 4 occasions.
It has been a strong few weeks for Petra Martic as she made the quarterfinals of the French Open, the semifinal of the Birmingham Classic and won the Istanbul Open. Considering Martic’s form, she will be tough to beat.
On the other side of the coin, Danielle Rose Collins had a big win in the previous round as she defeated Anastasija Sevastova in 3 sets. Collins also lost the opening set but she similarly fought back to win the match. During the victory, Collins received serve exceptionally well as she won 7 return games. The concern for Collins will be her serving as she lost 6 service games during the match.
Unlike Petra Martic, it has been a poor few months for Collins. Since the end of the hard court season, Danielle Rose Collins has only won 57% of her matches.
This is the first time that Danielle Rose Collins and Petra Martic will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Danielle Rose Collins had a big win in the previous round as she defeated the number 12 seed in the previous round. That being said, I see Collins losing this match. Petra Martic has been in outstanding form and the Croatian seems to be playing on a different level. Collins struggled with her serve in her previous match and I see that being costly against Martic. Petra Martic is playing outstanding tennis and I see her being too good for Danielle Rose Collins in this match.
